No story
with Pete would be complete without discussing his Corvette Calypso.  Pete shares his experience driving on the motor
sports tracks at the Corvette facility in Bowling Green Kentucky, getting on
the track at Watkins Glen and trying to break through at the Indianapolis Motor

We touch on a range of other topics including windfarms, solar panels, snow in Arizona in May, Music Highway, Route 66, tornadoes, broken windshields, Super 8, Motel 6, Great Road House Tour, Route 86, Discount Tire, St. Luke’s Church, “9 is fine”, refusing to pay a toll, UPS, trucker etiquette, catching a tail wind, studying the data of the trip and so much more.


Pete Neild Info:

There are three playlists that are referenced in the
Pod-Cast that can be shared:

One is complete for now, which is the planning.  Two
are works in progress.

And note that “TRIP OBJECTIVES” will be added in
the future.  That “list” may just have the same five videos that
are currently in PLANNING, edited to show the objectives met.  So instead
of a separate list; the 5 edited videos might just be added to PLANNING.
